Got Ink? San Diego Tattoo Shops

It’s no secret that we here at Wheatpaste love unique wall art, but there are plenty of people around the world who bring their love of art to a whole new level. Tattoo art has evolved into a genre in itself, and whether you’ve got one or one hundred, quality counts when it’s not going anywhere!

The arts culture of Southern California spans from cars to film to street art, but no art form is quite as dynamic as art on skin. In our opinion, San Diego is home to some of the premiere ink shops in the country and even the world. We’ve scooted around town and scouted what we think are some of the top San Diego tattoo shops practicing their art today!

A new kid in town, Buju Tattoo is one of the only female-owned San Diego tattoo shops, and the work walking out of their shop front in Mission Hills absolutely sizzles. Other notables include South Park’s Full Circle Tattoo, the dynamic duo of Avalon & Avalon II, and the noted Guru Tattoo in Pacific Beach (dare we say a diamond in the rough of the PB tattoo scene?).

As patrons to both Flying Panther Tattoos & Gallery in Golden Hill and Seven Seas Tattoo in downtown San Diego, they both hold special places in our hearts, and for good reason! There are good tattoos, bad tattoos, and next level off-the-chain totally epically amazing tattoos. The artists at Flying Panther and Seven Seas are wildly accomplished in their craft, and most of them carry out their artistic talents to non-moving 2D work as well, with plenty of art shows and cultural events throughout the Baja to Los Angeles area.

We already knew that we were lucky to live in SoCal for a multitude of reasons, but with the plethora of absolutely epic San Diego tattoo shops, we are blown away at the artistic talent in our fair city. If you’re on the fence about taking the ink plunge, check out some of the shops mentioned here and see if your jaw isn’t dropping as you flip through their portfolios. Godspeed to all on their body art journeys!
